well I was going to pass on seeing them play in berzerkeley in late July, but I see they are also playing the Mountain Winery in Saratoga on the 28th and I might just have to go to that one.

With a cough
I shake it off
And work around my yellow stripe
Should I hide
And eat my pride
Or wait until it's good and ripe
My life is boiling over
It's happened once before
I wish someone would open up the door

Fagen and Becker are just the best musical partnership on the planet. Fagen arranges and composes, Becker mixes, perfects, and plays a pretty mean guitar.

And.....they're both really weird

"Owsley and another person were arrested after their car ran out of gas."

wow, after thirty years a little light bulb comes on...

so I was wondering what ever happened to denny dias: "Dias is now a computer programmer living in Los Angeles. Along with Rich McConnell and Basil Hosmer he has been an architect of Nantucket's Clipper 5.x xBase compiler."

I recall a time when that info would require a day in the library...

"everyone stopped to stare at your technicolor motor home...."

"i think the people down the hall know who you are, careful what you carry...."

some great lines in that one to be sure.....

and i never fully got the "look at all the white men on the street, you're obsolete, get along kid charlemagne"....... like everyone is doing coke now, your star has risen and fallen....

this seems to be one of Fagen's favorite themes, the wannabes and has-beens, the hustlers and con-men -- these are the characters that inhabit the steely dan world.... not that far off from the dead, but taken to, a whole..... notha..... level.....

(i gotta go to bed.... or i'll be opening another bottle of wine and up all night with this shit..... CHEERS to Veblen and Yankee9..... see you dayglo freaks around....)
